Set in the exotic surroundings of the Ottoman Empire and with a narrative of abduction, murder and shipwreck, Le Corsaire is a swashbuckling pirate drama that delights for its spectacular nature and which includes some of the most bravura male dancing in the ballet repertoire. In this English National Ballet production – the first British staging of the work – former-ballerina-turned-choreographer Anna-Marie Holmes adapts the 1974 Petipa-Sergeyev Kirov version to create “brisk, stylish entertainment” (Guardian) that is visually enhanced by Hollywood designer Bob Ringwood’s “superb” (Daily Telegraph) Orientalist sets and costumes.

First-rate dancing by the company and its soloists – including Alina Cojocaru’s “radiant performance” as Medora (Independent), Yonah Acosta’s “vividly drawn and villainous” Birbanto (Financial Times) and Vadim Muntagirov’s “compelling” (Daily Telegraph) portrayal of Conrad – underscores the “roaring, madcap success” (Financial Times) of this production.
